Claude Monet uses the verdant banks to frame the shifting waters in this 1920-26 work, Morning. The four panels that compose the ensemble are united in a flowing rhythm.

As the sun climbs to its zenith in the sky, the lilies open in a dazzling display of bright color on the muted planes of the leaves and waters. The surface of the pond is in constant motion, and the lilies rise and fall on the gentle crests, just as the eye skims over the surface of the pond.

In Claude Monet's Green Reflections, Monet shifts to a cooler palette of green and blue to suggest the refreshing shade around the pond. Check out the next section to see Monet's Green Reflections.
